Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The Hansen Writers' Workshop Project* is a story of growth and change-- one that began in the fall of 1987 and continues to evolve. The main characters are the staff members who so willingly and enthusiastically became participants in this adventure. Without their strong commitment and support, this story would never have been told. This is also a story of possibilities-- the exciting things that can happen to teachers when they are free to be true professionals. The Hansen staff is very fortunate to have as its principal a man who believes in them as people and as professionals. Jim Jackson has had a profound influence on the climate at Hansen School, not only allowing teachers the freedom they need to try innovative teaching methods, but encouraging and supporting them as well.
